Research and involvement

One of the aims of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families is to develop research of the highest quality to inform practice, therefore improving outcomes for children and young people.

Parents play a crucial role in this, and we are often looking for parents to participate in research projects. Please see below for current opportunities to help change the future of mental health for children and young people. 

Please note: you do not have to be a Parent Champion to get involved in a research project.
